Canada wasn't even Canada during the War of 1812. And the primary objective of the United States was never to take over Canada (while it was a possibility). It was mostly about America's pent up rage against the British, and the Native Americans' pent up range against the colonists. The British were more interested in the Napoleonic wars, and Canada only had the troops that Britain sent. The outcome was really that the Native Americans lost, the new Americans turned their anger into patriotism, the Canadians decided to work on their own independence to avoid getting caught up in other wars for Britain, and Britain got slightly distracted from their Napoleonic wars for a couple of seconds.

When we went to make a grab for Canada, it was more of a "**** it, why not. Let's try and take more British land. That'll really piss 'em off."

And it did.

U.S.A. did not lose the Vietnam War. U.S.A never went to war with Vietnam. It was a conflict, because the US Congress didn't actually declare war. Instead the US President used his "constitutional discretion" calling it a "police action." U.S.A just went in there and killed a lot of men, women, and children, because Vietnam was negatively affecting neighboring countries.

Furthermore, the whole hippy-woodstock-peace movement came about because U.S.A's involment in Vietnam was so uncalled for, and so un-war related.

There's always the people who see these posts and even from the beginning of the post are formulating some sort of longwinded comment in their head.

You know who are.

As a Canadian we were taught that America could have steam rolled us, but seeing as though Canadian militia men and other british/native american forces held the US off long enough that considering they had pretty much only recently gained their independence, most were "losing interest" in fighting. It's been a while, so take that with a grain of salt.

not really america had 12000 men and 17 ships we were going to attack through new york but some dudes were like hey this war is useless so just go home so we attacked through Michigan and it failed because its hard to win wars against the worlds greatest power at that time

Thats what I mean by losing interest, people began realizing how useless it was, but they could have mucked our barns if they had gone through with the attack. Either way, nothing happened and Quebec's still a thing, so no one wins

I think this is funny, because us here in Europe only hear about the Napoleonic wars. I myself did not hear about the North American war of 1812 until I stumbled upon it as a teenager.

I don't think anybody really won outright.
America failed to take Canada and it's capital was burned, Britain failed to take America and got it's ass kicked wile in there.
If anything, the Canadians AND the Americans both won, as they both kept their land and won several major battles.

all these comments are pointless, the US and Britain had a little skrimish, no harm no foul, no real victors and at the end was the start of an alliance between US and Britain, and canada remained cold and useless.

Is it true that, in Scotland, kids are taught that the movie Braveheart is 100% fact?

I spoke to a Scottish girl a while ago who seemed to think that was exactly how **** went down. Obviously I felt obliged to educate the poor child on how the movie was 75% ********.

Also most English people have no problem with the Scottish, you just seem to hate us for no reason.

I know brave heart is basically only like 22% historically correct. The whole English thing i have no idea why, thats why i am voting no on independence because people want to be "Free from England" which would end in our downfall.

Just because he was in it doesn't make it ******** if it actually happened...there was no one famous person alive for the ENTIRE thing so they decided hey lets keep him around a little longer I would say the movie is 60% 40% ******** with a majority pass

the more the merrier, buddy.
in a fair war against an equaly strong opponent the US would lose. all they do is use drones and high tech soldiers against weak small and countries that refuse to be controlled by the corrupted US.

Contrary to popular belief, Canadian militia were not present at the burning of Washington; General Ross and over 4,000 British regulars landed on the eastern coast of Maryland and march inland. They were met by 6,000 American militia near Bladensburg. Although the Americans had more men, they weren't a match for the British regulars, and neither was their commander. The American army fled, and the redcoats marched into Washington.

Man if we got that Andy Jackson victory that occurred after the war was over before we decided so, who knows how long we would have fought with the changed morale. Andy was a badass though.

It really bugs me when Canadians say that they burned down the Whitehouse, when in reality there were almost no Canadian troops involved in the Burning of Washington, the vast majority were Brittish troops who had sailed to America for the war.

Not only that, but Americans also managed to burn down Toronto. Burning down a whole city rather than a one building seems more devastating.

This comic sums up the comments from the Canadians.

"OMG, America just rename the war, "Canadian Independence War" cause the sole purpose was to invade Canada WHICH FAILED HAHAHA and the war ended after the White House burned down and was never rebuilt again cause it's a Tim Hortons. The End.
